On tap at Ramsey Tap Room & Grill, resplendent Northwest-hopped (Citra-Mosaic-Azacca-Strata) Imperial IPA (with fluffy vanilla creaming) brings juicy tropical fruiting to mild pine tones. Tangy peach-mango vibrancy, fresh squeezed orange zing and lemon limed zesting stay briskly clean before mild juniper and redcurrant bittering plus resinous cannabis whim secure candy-spiced citrus finish.
Resounding Irish potato candy knockoff , “a traditional Philly confection,” delivers coconut-flaked ground cinnamon to powder-sugared marshmallow center and honeyed Graham Cracker base while retaining bittersweet cocoa permanence. Shaved coconut sweetness outdoes cinnamon coffee respite in rich mocha setting.
Caffeinated Revolution coffee infiltrates ashen nuttiness and bitter berry blur as zesty citric-pined Mosaic-Azacca hops dampen lightly musked earthen astringency underneath.
Fudgy vanilla ice creamed dark chocolate entry receives mild cinnamon spicing to contrast slightly bitter hop char over buttery corn-flaked barley roast. Tertiary brandy, black cherry and black grape illusions subtly graze fried ice cream caking.
Robust espresso-milked cocoa fudging embraces caramel latte sweetness over mild tobacco-stained hop char. Ancillary toffee, Kahlua and cappuccino illusions deepen superb dessert treat.
Fine tropical-fruited summertime moderation takes straightforward path to sessionability. Crisply clean pink grapefruit-licked pineapple tang gains subtle blood orange tartness to placate mild grassy hop astringency over dry cardboardy pale malts. Lemon custard, apricot, quince, mango, peach and vinous grape undertones flutter.
Easygoing lo-cal IPA with spongy white head fading above its clear straw body utilizes acai berry to increase overall tartness. Spritzy lemon fizz prickles hard-candied pineapple, lacquered peach and mandarin orange illusions guided by acai-like pomegranate tartness above grassy-hopped wheat wafer bottom.
Unassumingly splendid updated version of standard Extra Pale Ale given delicate Citra-hopped IPA fruiting for truly sessionable appeal. Soft-tongued lemony orange-grapefruit tang embeds hushed herbal hop astringency above bready barley-toasted pale malts as tertiary pineapple, peach and tangerine snips waver.
Sessionably soft-toned tropical ale nudges salted passionfruit and guava tartness past bittersweet mango-pineapple piquancy, candied mandarin orange souring and strawberry rhubarb respite above muted white wheat base.
Refreshingly clean salt-watered taffy tartness promoted by limey strawberry pucker. Mildly sour sea-salted lime briskness combines with strawberry spritz and less prominent agave-cologned herbage for White Claw hard seltzer appeal, but Graham Cracker wheat bottom’s outta place.
On tap at Biggie’s, updated version of brewers’ most popular ale (newly labeled and stylistically bettering similarly-named ’06 precursor, Belgian Style Dubbel) places spicy brown-sugared dried fruiting alongside caramelized chocolate malting. Molasses-dipped dried cherry, fig, raisin and date sweetness gains peaty respite as well as subdued chestnut, banana bread and toffee notions.
Well-balanced autumnal offering laces spritzy cinnamon-spiced caramel malting with leafy hop foliage and wispy pecan nuttiness over mildly earthen bottom. Easygoing seasonal fare for the masses.
